That doesn't mean there won't be good tennis.
The day will feature junior, collegiate, wheelchair and main draw doubles action throughout the grounds. The winner of the collegiate tournament receives a wild card bid to next year's Open, so you may catch a glimpse of future talent, and late round doubles play is always entertaining.
Plus, you'll have access to the five practice courts, where those remaining in the men's and women's singles draw may show up for a light hit. The intimate view from these courts may get you closer to the top pros than you ever imagined.
Thursday night will feature the women's semifinals under the lights in Ashe. While you'll need a ticket to enter stadium court, the U.S. Open invites those who came for the day to watch the matches on the big screens throughout the grounds.
